  1. You are a bit off the track there , Dutch. It isn't Shiloh Sharps that charges the 200.00 for an earlier delivery , it is Bill Goodman , who has standing orders with Shiloh. It is one of his spots that one puts the deposit on. Rex
  2. Gus to Pea-Eye , Lonesome Dove. Rex After posting this I tried to find it on Google also , no luck. I even scanned thru the novel , but there is just too much of it. So I will just say , I "think" that's were it came from. Not sure . A damn good quote wherever it originated.
  3. I hope for the Cody folks this isn't the beginning of something like what happened to Jackson. Rex
  4. If you have BP anywhere in the equation , start with a 45-70. Much more data from all those who have gone before. If the single-shot bug really takes hold , you can expand later. If you tire of the game or find it just isn't your thing , a 45-70 would be easier to get some of you capital back. Good luck , and good shooting. Rex
  5. When I bought this computer , with Windows 10 installed , I was switching from a Windows XP. With my computer talents , the learning curve has been so steep that I am not to the second level yet , and I have had it over 4 years. Just not a real computer kind of guy. Anyway , I can turn it on and browse here amongst folks with similar interests. And get E-mail. Rex
  6. Your loads will probably like no crimp as well as anything. Just straighten the case so it will chamber. Might want to be open to a blow tube for fouling control , although I don't know how it will be in Alabama. My only experience was in dry climates. Good luck and good shooting. Rex
  7. Well , in another thread that number shows up as the price that the Sammy Davis Colt fetched. I will say , I think that the way this one started was kinda boneheaded , but that is just me. Rex
  8. I was wondering what took you so long to grab these. I was starting to think about re-financing my truck. Glad you got here. Rex
  9. Another handy tool is the one for unscrewing the magazine end plug on 66s and 73s. Before they were available , I used a broke-off piece of hacksaw blade held with vice-grips. No screwdriver that I could find was wide enough with a thin enough blade. Rex
  10. I traded for a S&W 442 that had Crimson Trace grips , but could not get them to work very well for me. Something about my hand , the just-right size and length of fingers , the button was right in the crease where the finger bends. Had a Kimber Crimson Carry that worked great , and my little Ruger LCP works every time. I sometimes carry the J-frame , but with some bigger wood grips. Rex
  11. If you take a notion to really treat yourself , grab that Colt Woodsman that is for sale over in the Classifieds. That would be one sweet pistol. Rex
  12. Please send me a hint also , Preacher Kid. Thanks , Rex
  13. What the Hell ; if that's what it takes to keep shooting , one makes do. I admire your tenacity and fortitude to kinda stick it to the governmental dumbasses. Looks be damned. Salute , Rex
  14. That other guy who wrote a lot of handgun articles was probably Bob Milek . I had no idea that NRA offered anything but American Rifleman and American Hunter. Will be checking out that Shooting Illustrated. Rex
  15. Have decided to try to sell my MEC Super-sizer , got it back when I had a MEC 650 , which doesn't have sizer die. I have been using a 9000G for a while now , and think I can do without this super-sizer. Looked up in Midway site for what they run price-wise now days , got a shock there. Inflation !!! Anyway , will ship this one for 90.00 , figure it will cost about 20.00 for postage. Any pard close enough for FTF can have it for 70.00 Thanks for looking , Rex
  16. Pards ; offer for sale here my Hornady Pro-Jector. Hasn't seen too much use since I got a Dillon 650 about 15 years ago. I was still using it for loading my 44 Russian until recently , finally got a set of dies that will work in the Dillon. It will ship with 5 of the shell-plates , both large and small primer tubes and arms , an RCBS powder measure , and the original instruction manual. The 5 shell-plates are: #01 for 45 ACP , 308 , etc. #06 for 357/38 #16 for 223 and others with same head-size , plus .380 ACP # 30 for 44 Mag/Special , and Russian. # 32 for 45 Colt Asking 300.00 , shipped , in CONUS. Any pards close enough for FTF can have it for 250.00 Thanks for looking , Rex
  17. Nubbins , could it be the movie "Shoot Out" , where Peck was travelling with a small girl , and had roped a pony for the kid. Then was talking to the old man who owned the ranch ; who told him it had been his late wife's favorite. Rex
  18. I have tried to use Dillon and RCBS uniflow powder measures with APP ; both 2f and 3f , with no success. Usually end up dipping the charges. Just as well , I am basically lazy , so that eliminates having to take the powder measures apart for cleaning after using APP. Rex
  19. This thread has about jumped the track anyway , so I will tell a short story. A pard down in Texas ( who has passed over) had a 357 Marlin that piled the brass in a spot about 18 inches past his right foot. All together. Have no idea who tuned it , don't know why I never asked. Brass pickers loved it. Rex
  20. C. W. , you might want to specify caliber of RCBS set. Rex
